Actress Sobhita Dhulipala has been roped in for an important role in director Sashi Kiran's Major. The film marks Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu's debut as a producer and is inspired by 26/11 martyr, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. The film stars Adivi Sesh in the title role.
Sobhita says her character in the bilingual film is impeccably detailed.
"The arc of my character in Major is impeccably detailed and done with honesty. Goodachari, my debut film in Telugu went on to become a critical and commercial success, so it is doubly wonderful for me to reunite with the same team for a film as feisty as Major," Sobhita said.
The actress reunites again with Goodachari director Sashi Kiran and actor Adivi Sesh in the film.
"I am happy to collaborate with Sobitha after our Telugu superhit Goodachari. It is exciting that we are doubling our challenges for a Major in Hindi," Kiran says.
Major is inspired on the life of national hero Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the NSG commando lost his life in the tragic 26/11 terrorist attack in Mumbai. The bilingual film is being shot in Telugu and Hindi.
Produced by Sony Pictures Films India in association with GMB Entertainment and A+S Movies, Major is all set for a 2020 release.
